- Grumpy Bear: Pun absolutely intended.
- Humans Are the Real Monsters: His attitude at first, more so than the other Gummis.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's, well, gruff, and unsocial, but has a good nature nonetheless. He just doesn't want to be seen as soft. for example, upon finding out Cavin survived being on Igthorn's runaway catapult; "He's all right! He's all right! (Catches himself) …For a human, that is…"

Voiced by: Lorenzo Music

- Meaningful Name: Basically "Tummy" with an i, which he likes to keep full.
- Literal-Minded: In one episode, Gruffi asked for a hammer and that Tummi should step on it. Tummi stepped on the hammer.

- Meaningful Name: A play on "cub" since he's the youngest of the Glen Gummis.
- Not Now, Kiddo: The older Gummis often ignore Cubbi, even when they'd be better off listening to him, much to his chagrin.
